Food!Chinatown in Sydney is not at a shortage of food and drink for anyone who visits. It is renowned for it's eating arrangements and it definitely won't allow you to go hungry. "I love all of the smells when you walk in!"-Barbara Smith (2014)

Shops!As you make your way through the busy thoroughfare that is Chinatown, you will come across many different vendors, small kiosks and shops selling all kinds of goods, varying from snacks to toys to pets! "Chinatown is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get!"-Forrest Frump (2013)

Some History on Chinatown Sydney's version of Chinatown has a fair amount of history explaining how it became such a pivotal part of common Sydney tourism, such as during the Gold Rush era a lot of Chinese/Asian families came to Australia to start a new life. A fair chunk of those families moved to Victoria in search of riches, but many of these families stayed within this area and made it what it is today. Chinatown's history is clearly a big part of why people visit it, because it's a culture that the average Australian doesn't experience in their day to day life, and it is also a hub for social get togethers. "I never knew Chinatown was so old!" -Shaun hosengolfenhousen (2014)
